A few months ago I discovered a delicious nut, the Pili Nut. It’s similar to a pine nut in it’s texture and creaminess, but larger like a macadamia nut or peanut. I was able to purchase these nuts from www.RawFoodWorld.com. They also sell a delicious Pili Nut Butter, which reminds me of creamy chocolate syrup or rawtella – just delish!
Anyway, I absolutely love snacking on homemade chia crackers, but wanted something a little more unique. So, I decided to make chia crackers with pili nuts, pili nut butter, and some dried cranberries. “Wow!” Is all I have to say about this yummy little cracker recipe! Hope you like it too…
Pili Nut, Cranberry, Chia Crackers
1 cup chia seeds
3 cups water
1/2 to 1 cup pili nuts chopped
1/2 to 1 cup dried cranberries chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup cacao nibs
1/2 to 1 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
1 T Thai coconut sugar sap
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine chia crackers and water in a big bowl and stir. Let set till slightly gelatinous. Stir again. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Spread evenly over lined dehydrator tray(s). Dehydrate on 104F degrees for about 1-2 hours. Score the mixture for cracker shapes. Dehydrate another 3-4 hours. Place a dehydrator tray with mesh screen over top and flip. Remove liner and tray, and place tray with flipped chia mixture back in dehydrator. Dry for another 4-8 hours or more until crackers are desired texture. Cool, break apart and eat. Store them in an air tight container. These crackers won’t last very long at all!
